    Will never go back! Sat at our table for 10 minutes and we're never approached by a server so we left. It was a Tues. night and there were only about 5 tables being waited on, so it wasn't like they were slammed with customers.

    The place is small and intimate; the food good but a pit pricey. A foodie would love this place. The service is meant to have that personal touch but can end up being a bit slow.

    First time for me inside the Next Wood Fired Bistro although my wife had visited one day for lunch. The Seared Ahi Tuna and my wife's skillet of Lasagna were both excellent, as was the house Cabernet. I was not surprised by the price because of the 4 glasses of wine, how good the food and service was and the fact that I picked a "special" menu item, but the total will, unfortunately, limit the number of times we visit in the future. We're talking special occasions good though. Actually, the Lasagna was moderately priced, maybe we will back for more of it... it was exceptionally good!

    Our second trip to Next Wood...they'd have to work hard to replicate the disaster from the first go around. Food was good. Better than average, but not great. Actual menu was different from menu on Open Table. The staff was average by every definition. The owners have tried to turn a former fast food building (taco bell?) into an upscale restaurant and they have done an admirable job. With that said, the pricing reflects a higher quality food and overall experience than was delivered. $60 for surf & turf that was unremarkable. Its not a Bob's or Silver Fox but more akin to Brio's or Ferarri's (for area comparison). Most opportunity for improvement is in the overall dining experience where the little things count the most.

    This was our third time at Next, and just as wonderful as the first two times. Their pizzettes and flatbreads are fabulous, and they have plenty of other options as well. Nice wine list and great array of scotches among the rest of their bar selection. My husband is hooked on the Serrano ham, fig and goat cheese pizzette, and has ordered it every time. We have brought several friends here, and everybody has enjoyed it!

    Dined on 8/15/2013
    We found this little gourmet restaurant while trying to locate something new that we didn't have to drive far to get to. Had driven past their small unassuming location a few times, thinking that "wood-fired" meant it was some pizza joint. It isn't. While they do also serve pizzas, their main business is selling chef-made dishes. Different specials each time I go in. Entrees typically cost $15 to $30. Portions are good enough for my wife and I to share entrees and salads, making the cost more budget-friendly. The staff are very attentive. Francois is an excellent waiter... his advice on selections has not led us wrong. They have a good selection of wines and Scotch whiskeys, as well as specialty drinks. The small bar is usually packed.

    I was looking for somewhere I had not been before for a girls night out. I picked so I sure hoped it was good place. It was. Good varied selection on the food and wine menu and great service. We were very happy with the food. We sat for a couple hours talking and they were very kind to us. Have already recommended and can't wait to go back.

    My wedge salad was soggy. The waitress was very unattentive, Salmon was cooked perfectly but a little too salty. Spinach was the saltiest thing I have ever been served. My 2 dinner companions agreed. Won't be going back there. Complained about the spinach and the manager didn't even come over to apologize or visit with us. Very disappointing.

    Dined on 6/6/2013
    Our lunch experience was less than our party of four expected. We had heard that dinner was wonderful, so we had high hopes for a delicious lunch. The lunch menu is large, but way too heavy on sandwiches. Ruben sandwich was lackluster and my friend's turkey club was BIG on quantity, but short on flavor. The chicken salad was the best selection in our estimation with the crab cakes coming in second. The Italian Creme Cake was good, but would have been infinitely better had it not been served cold. We want to give it another try. It is a lovely restaurant.

    Dined on 5/25/2013
    They were out of several items and our waiter was overwhelmed and this was probably due to going here over the Memorial weekend. They seemed to not have planned for a "full house". It took a very long time to get our wine, take our order and we even had to ask for silverware. The food was pretty good. I'm thinking it is worth going again but during the week and definitely not on a holiday weekend. The staff was nice but again, train your waiters and make sure they inform you up front if you are out of something.

    Even though we had our reservation, we were given the worst table in the restaurant--right next to the door. Though we asked for a different table, the two hostesses at the door were clueless about moving us, even though 4 tables opened up within a couple of minutes. Frustrating…Had an out of town guest with us, and we had been raving about the place, however this created a bad tone right from the start.
